Antique Triple Wardrobes are a very Large Antique Wardrobe built with three main sections, usually a central mirror door and two outer full length figured doors. The central interior is quite often fitted with drawers and linen slides, whereas the two outer interiors will usually have hanging rails and brass or wood turned hooks, originally used to hang wigs or clothes. These grand pieces of antique furniture are usually built using finely figured woods like Mahogany or Burr walnut and occasionally inlaid. They were built from the mid Victorian to the Edwardian periods by highly skilled craftsmen who also specialised in building bedroom suites so you can quite often find other matching bedroom pieces for the same room. They would usually have a matching dressing table, bed and washstand, although many do get split up over time. Some of the best cabinet makers made the triple wardrobe from Holland and sons to Heal and son, occasionally we do find them stamped but they are very sought after and collected so they do sell very fast. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.
